South-East Asia has many dry years ahead. This should come as no surprise. Many parts of the region have regularly been stricken by droughts that have destroyed crops, heightened fire risks, and led to acute shortages of drinking water. The hardest hit are the poor, especially farming communities that rely on regular rainfall for their annual crops and who have few resources to fall back on during periods of rain shortfall. They are already likely to live on the degraded land that is most vulnerable to the effects of drought.
